Market find but did not buy. Aristocrat $89.00. Decent but not exceptional condition.
Canadian funds also.

If there is no plate loss, buy it. Otherwise you will regret it later. The case seems to be in good condition too. Last year I found an Aristocrat in mint condition and didn't buy it. Luckily, I found another and bought it, but things like this don't happen every day.

Funny, I think I saw that very razor yesterday while the missus and I were antique shopping. I passed on it too. Nice Aristocrat though.

It's a #66.  Beautiful razor. Not really super rare, but not an everyday find, either.

I will.  They won't ship it to me until Monday.  They have a big antique show this weekend. Once I get it, I will post pics.

Can you tell it isn't a #16? I have to look at the underside of the baseplate to see if it's flat or diamond.

I am not kingfisher but: 
It would be in a wrong case, which is not impossible. 
The baseplate of the 16 has sharper corners so am pretty sure its a 66.
Great find OP. Enjoy your razor.

I will post pics of it once it arrives.  For what I paid, I don't care if it is a 16 or 66.  I will be happy with either.

Agree. My 16 actually came in the wrong case, and it happened to be the 66 case. But more than likely this is indeed a 66.

If in doubt, buy it anyway! Then you can decide whether to keep it or not at your leisure. Thumbup

That was my opinion, which is why I bought it.  I will decide if it is a keeper once it arrives.
